You Never Knew

Sometimes life can take you where you never knew you wanted to go.  That can be a fantastic thing where you meet someone who makes your heart sing, find an amazing sale, come across something you’ve heard about but never had a chance to try, find the perfect camping spot or just see something amazing. …

Once I Get There

There’s a well-known rule in corporate management: Be the ruler of your email lest you be ruled.  It’s death by a thousand cuts, the rabbit hole of email where things just keep going and going, the never-ending email thread…you get the picture.  If you work on email first you’ll never work on anything else for…

The Cheap Version

You can tell the difference between artisan and mass-produced.  We all can at this point.  Injected plastic vs hand molded, off the conveyor belt vs. just out of the oven, thrown together in sweat shop vs. just off the needles of the person selling it to you. It’s not just the price which can be…

Sometimes to have what you really want, to do and be what you really want, you have to go through being uncomfortable.  Want an example, here’s one of mine. I’m a middle-aged woman huffing and puffing out there, but the joy of actually doing it, of reclaiming a part of myself that has been dormant…

What Is the Best Thing For Me To Do?

Do something.  One of the biggest problems that people face when it comes to achieving their dreams, walking their path, or improving their lives is they do anything and everything other than actually doing something that moves them towards the goal.  I’ve talked with a number of clients who are still exactly where they were…

Codependency

The New Codependency by Melody Beattie Codependency is normal behavior, plus.  There are times we do too much, care too much, feel too little, or overly engage. We forget where the other person’s responsibilities begin and our responsibilities stop. Or we get busy and have so much to do that we neglect ourselves. Codependents may…
